Introduce 'Confluence Administrator' permission (less powerful than 'System Administrator' permission)



    • Suggestion
    • Resolution: Fixed
    • 2.7
    • None
    • We collect Confluence feedback from various sources, and we evaluate what we've collected when planning our product roadmap. To understand how this piece of feedback will be reviewed, see our Implementation of New Features Policy.


      • More detail at: http://extranet.atlassian.com/display/HDS/%27Confluence+Manager%27+Permission
      • For DevSuite, we will need a permission level similar to Global Administrator except with some permissions removed.
      • Permissions to be removed are those which could jeopardize the file system or hosted environment.
      • For the install product, a typical use case is where a top-level administrator wants to delegate some administration privileges to a manager, team leader, etc., but not those which could jeopardize the application environment, network, etc.
      • We would like to add a permission level, hierarchically between 'Confluence Administrator' and 'Confluence User' which we refer to as 'Confluence Manager'
      • We would like this permission to have access to the same Administration functions as 'Confluence Administrator', except with the following revisions to the Administration menu:
      • Configuration
        o Modify 'General Configuration'
        + remove 'API plugin'
        + remove 'Server Base URL'
        + remove 'External User Management Option'
        + remove 'Public Signup'
        o remove 'Daily Backup Admin'
        o remove 'Plugins'
        o remove 'Plugin Repository'
        o remove 'Mail Servers'
        o remove 'User Macros'
        o remove 'Attachment Storage'
      • Look and Feel
        o remove 'Layouts'
        o remove 'Custom HTML'
      • Administration
        o remove 'Backup & Restore'
        o remove 'SnipSnap Import'
